This chapter contains the following sections:
CiscoView must be installed before Threshold Manager.
Step 1 In the CiscoWorks Windows program group, double-click on the Install Device icon.
Step 2 Select Threshold_NT.pkg. Click on OK.
To install Threshold Manager on Solaris systems, perform the following steps:
Step 1 Login as root.
Step 2 Enter the following command:
The cvinstall command creates a directory called Threshold_Mgr in $NMSROOT/etc/cview/devices and installs the application and related files in this directory. The default installation of CiscoView puts cvinstall in /opt/CSCOcv/bin. See the CiscoView Incremental Install documentation for more information.
After Threshold Manager is installed, the CiscoView menu has an additional pulldown menu item called Tools. Select Threshold Mgr... from the Tools pulldown menu to launch Threshold Manager. Note that the Tools menu item is only available when CiscoView is invoked on devices that support RMON and have an IOS image that has RMON support built into it. Note that the Tools item is always enabled for non-IOS devices such as Catalyst switches.
Step 1 Locate TM.EXE in File Manager.
Step 2 Select File>Run.
Step 3 Enter TM.EXE -I IP_Address
TM.EXE -n host_name
in the Command field.
The following runtime arguments are also supported:
|-c config_directory||No default. If not specified, Threshold Manager searches the directory where the executable is located.|
|-r read_community_string||Default is public.|
|-w write_community_string||Default is private.|
|-e retry_count||Default is 1.|
|-m timeout||Default is 5 (seconds).|
|-f refresh_interval||Default is 360 (seconds).|
At the prompt, enter the following command:
$NMSROOT/etc/cview/devices/Threshold-Mgr/tm [-I IP-address|-n host_name]
Additional runtime arguments are the same as the ones listed above for Windows NT.
